Toward a Closer Walk

When Enough is Enough

Maybe it’s that our favorite sin has lost its appeal. Maybe it’s that even then, we finally figure out that we still can’t overcome it and live the perfect life on our own willpower. Maybe it’s a realization that we don’t even know what needs to be done in our life, but we know that something has to change.

 

At some point, we realize we have to make a decision – THE decision. Are we going to continue to try to carry this our self, to keep on pretending that we’ve got it all figured out; or are we going to admit that we don’t really have the answers or the plan that will lead us to happiness, heaven, and especially to Him? Are we going to surrender, and thus win the victory? Have we had enough – once and for all?

 

Lauren Daigle (rhymes with bagel) has a song about reaching that point of surrender. It’s titled “Once and For All” and will touch you deeply and possibly help you in your surrender today.

Lauren Daigle – Once and For All

 

God I give You what I can today
These scattered ashes that I hid away
I lay them all at Your feet

 

From the corners of my deepest shame
The empty places where I've worn Your name
Show me the love I say I believe

 

Oh Help me to lay it down
Oh Lord I lay it down

Oh let this be where I die
My Lord with thee crucified
Be lifted high as my kingdoms fall
Once and for all, once and for all

 

There is victory in my Savior’s loss
And in the crimson flowing from the cross
Pour over me, pour over me yes

 

Oh let this be where I die
My Lord with thee crucified
Be lifted high as my kingdoms fall
Once and for all, once and for all

 

Oh Lord I lay it down
Oh Lord I lay it down
Help me to lay it down
Oh Lord I lay it down

 

Oh let this be where I die
My Lord with thee crucified
Be lifted high as my kingdoms fall
Once and for all, once and for all


Once and for all
Once and for all
